DIY Lightsaber is a Work of Art

DIY Lightsaber is a Work of Art
Sure, you can buy a toy lightsaber prop just about anywhere, but if you really want to look the part, you have to go the way that Bradley Lewis did with his gorgeous handmade lightsaber and build your own.

IPad + Podium = Ipodium

IPad + Podium = Ipodium
While I’m probably not speaking for the majority of you out there, I bring my iPad everywhere I go. I use it for taking notes in meetings, sending e-mails, watching movies, and even the occasional game of Fruit Ninja HD.

Exovault Metal iPhone Cases: Coolest Cases on the Block

Exovault Metal iPhone Cases: Coolest Cases on the Block
These EXOvault cases for the iPhone are real stunners. Each one is handmade from metal, and some models are engraved with intricate designs. Each one of EXOvault’s cases is crafted from lightweight metals, such as brass or anodized aluminum, and feature a beautiful inlaid rosewood accent on back.

Buy This Metal Yoda, You Will.

Buy This Metal Yoda, You Will.
Created entirely from old bits of metal and scrap parts, this diminutive (but life-size) Yoda sculpture looks awesome. Handmade by Bangkok artist Yumi Modal, the only thing better would be if the little metal guy’s lightsaber actually lit up – but whaddya want for scrap metal?

Transformers LED Clock/Watch(?) on the Way From Japan

Transformers LED Clock/Watch(?) on the Way From Japan
The guys at Japan’s Seahope, known for many a cool digital watch – have partnered up with Takara Tomy to produce a new timepiece inspired by the Transformers. While it’s not exactly clear from this early concept sketch, we’re hoping the chronolabel LED Transformer will transform from a watch to a stand-up clock. 

Handmade Steel at-at Model Ftw

Handmade Steel at-at Model Ftw
Ok, we have a new champion in the race to build the coolest AT-AT model ever. Weighing in at a whopping 40lbs and measuring about 28″ tall, Supertrone’s handmade AT-AT sculpture is built from steel parts, all neatly welded together.

The Ever Increasing Watch: an 11 on a Geek Scale of 1 to 10

The Ever Increasing Watch: an 11 on a Geek Scale of 1 to 10
Weird watches are like catnip to some geeks. They can’t resist showing off how different they are by wearing a watch that catches the eye and confuses the mind of normal watch wearers.

Our Cylon Overlords Would Approve of This Watch

Our Cylon Overlords Would Approve of This Watch
Although Cylons don’t really need watches, since they’re androids and probably have some sort of on-board timer circuit, I’m sure that our robot overlords would approve of us human scum wearing these watches. The Robot 1259C Watch was designed by Japan’s Seahope.

Tao Ma’S Watch Concept Puts the Screws to Time

Tao Ma’S Watch Concept Puts the Screws to Time
We’ve certainly featured our fair share of unusual watches here on Technabob, so I figured why not continue that tradition with this watch that replaces normal hands with screw heads. Conceptualized by China’s Tao Ma, the MEN2014 watch would replace the hour, minute and second hands with screw heads which have a small red mark at the end to indicate the current position on the dial.

Tokyoflash Instant Trend Watch Sends Tweets to Your Wrist

Tokyoflash Instant Trend Watch Sends Tweets to Your Wrist
The guys over at watchmaker Tokyoflash never cease to amaze me with their creative digital watch designs. Their latest concept is the Instant Trend, a timepiece that not only looks cool, but can display text notifications from your mobile phone.

Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is Geek Overload

Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is Geek Overload
I like converged items. I like my phone to work like a computer and a game console for example. I can also appreciate when geeks converge two of their passions into one extra geeky item. Such is the case with the steampunk Stormtrooper helmet we have here today.

Tokyoflash Hexagon Art Watch Concept: It’S Hip to be Hexagonal

Tokyoflash Hexagon Art Watch Concept: It’S Hip to be Hexagonal
We can always count on the guys over at TokyoFlash to come up with new and different ways to tell the time. With their modern approach to product design, they’re now asking shoppers to weigh in on prospective designs before they go ahead and create the real watches.

The Airplane Hangar Gets Extremely Literal

The Airplane Hangar Gets Extremely Literal
I always wondered why they called it an airplane hangar. This clever wall hook system is definitely a clever play on the airplane hang(e)r concept. Created by Kolja Clemens of Germany’s MOM, these cool aluminum airplanes are just the right size and shape for hanging up your leather bomber jacket or flak jacket.

Rotobotmouse: One Unusual Mouse

Rotobotmouse: One Unusual Mouse
I think that’s actually an understatement. The Rotobotmouse is one of the stranger computer mice that I’ve seen in my travels – and I’ve seen lots of mouses. Created by artist Aaron Ristau, the Rotobotmouse definitely has some steampunk underpinnings, but it’s really got a look that’s all its own.

Henry’S Robots: Metal Model Mechs Make Me Merry

Henry’S Robots: Metal Model Mechs Make Me Merry
These amazingly intricate robot models come to us courtesy of Henry’s Robots. Henry has been amassing a virtual army of miniature metal mecha in his laboratory over the last few years. Each one is lovingly handmade by Henry, and I only wish I could have one sitting on my desktop right now.

Kinekt Gear Ring: the Only Ring a Geek Would Ever Want

Kinekt Gear Ring: the Only Ring a Geek Would Ever Want
This unique creation looks to me like one cool ring, one of the rare rings that I’m actually interested in, other than the One ring to rule them all. It’s called the Kinekt Gear Ring, and it’s a perfect gift for any tinkerer or mechanically-inclined geek.
